Toxicity of acetamiprid to workers of Reticulitermes flaviceps (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae), Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) and Odontotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Toxicity of acetamiprid to workers of Reticulitermes flaviceps (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae), Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) and Odontotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Journal of Pesticide Science 30(3): 187-191



The toxicity of acetamiprid was tested on Reticulitermes flaviceps (Oshima), Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki and Odontotermes formosanus (Shiraki), important pests in buildings, dams and trees in China. The LD50 value of acetamiprid among worker termites of the three species was 4.41x10-5, 13.8x10-5 and 146x10-5 micro g/termite, respectively, at 72 hr post-treatment. More than 90% of individuals tested died within 120 hr of coming into contact with sandy soil containing 4.8 ppm of acetamiprid.
